world-class golf

Unbelievable views, unforgettable play.

Having a home course is familiar and convenient. Having a home course you absolutely love, is another thing entirely. When you live at Albemarle, the incredible, nationally acclaimed Dan Maples-designed Sound Golf Links is your golfing reality.


Dan Maples Design

A brilliant Dan Maples-designed championship course, this course has something for all skill levels and flows gracefully through our unique coastal terrain. Towering pines and moss-draped cypress, gently waving marshes, stretching wetlands add beauty and challenge. The course crescendos to an incredible finish with a dramatic trio of holes along the breathtaking Albemarle Sound. The course’s satisfying play and stunning natural scenery is enough to make you forget your score, should you wish to do so. Our residents have said it best, things like: ‘It’s challenging but not overly challenging;’ ‘Each hole is very private;’ ‘It’s like a new course every time you play it.’

After the game, return home to your own Plantation Clubhouse for food and drink, and the warm camaraderie of the 19th hole.


Perfectly Placed Among Nature’s Majesty

Just down the wide, scenic street from wherever you reside at Albemarle Plantation, you’ll find the gracious Clubhouse overlooking the Albemarle Sound. On the 18th green of the Sound Golf Links, the Clubhouse stands watch over a grand lawn on the waterfront, hemmed with a formal hedge. It is home to the Clubhouse Restaurant overlooking the Sound. Here, you’ll enjoy a full-service bar in the Grille Room, an airy, formal dining room with soaring windows and a raised outside terrace for dining al fresco in our temperate Carolina climate. Lunch and dinner are lovely here and our Sunday Brunch is a delicious weekend tradition.


Time and mother nature made Albemarle beautiful. Friends make it home.

The Albemarle Pro Shop is fully stocked with new styles, in-demand equipment and competitive prices. Perfect for a last minute need before you hit the course or a strategic equipment upgrade to improve your game.

Warm up before a round or practice on our manicured, full-sized driving range. Drill skills on your own or up your game via a private lesson with an Albemarle golf pro. Have a question or need advice? That’s what we’re here for. Our accommodating staff pride themselves on white-glove service and effective advice. We look forward to seeing you on the course!

The ping of the day’s best tee Shot…

sounds perfect

“We found the plantation in 2005 and knew from the beginning that this was the place to live. The marina and golf is what brought us here, but we also realized that the friendships we have made since we arrived are now the most important. What a fun place to live!”
– Bill and Amy, Homeowners


30 Years of Golfing Perfection

Known as the jewel of Albemarle Plantation, The Sound Golf Links is an incredible course. This year marks its 30th Anniversary and we couldn’t be more proud of our breathtaking home course. Dan Maples carefully planned this masterpiece to make the most out of the unique waterways and woodlands at Albemarle.

Construction on The Sound Golf Links began in 1989 and the course was ready for play in the fall of 1990.

The course’s distinct layout occupies some of the most incredible water frontage in Albemarle Plantation, allowing the entire community to access the most majestic scenery of our Inner Banks home. It plays like a dream, challenges just enough, and never disappoints. Here’s to another 30 great years of The Sound Golf Links!
